Congrats, so you did 293 and 294 on the same day?
You seem to be knocking these out very fast, do you have a lot of experience with Server 2003?
Good job, good luck on the 298
What study material are you using?
......And yeah, were did that rant come from??? Gotta love them random rants.
Oh yeah... good show Harrists! Congratulations!!!! Sorry to open up the "western front" within your post. Nothing wrong with a bit of friendly debate.
As most of the others on this forum, I have definite opinions on the value of certs, the value of IT people, and the state of the industry, as well as on the general philosophy of "bleeding edge" careers that require you to stay on top of new information as it comes out. However, in leau of continuing the debate, I think I'll just say this:
As a common courtesy, It hink it's best that we save our rants for dedicated posts in the Off-Topic, General Certifiation, or IT Jobs / Degrees forums, depending on what the post relates to. Hijacking someone's "I passed" thread is a little off-putting, both to the original poster and to the rest of us who want to congratulate him/her. Creating a dedicated rant-posting will allow people to look at it if they want, but won't force someone who just wants to share some good news and feel good about passing an exam to jump into a debate on the "politics of IT". Not a criticism, persay, but I think it would be a good policy for us to follow in order to stay friends (and professional) on the forum, while preserving the good-natured and high-spirited fun we all like to have when we're here.
